, that doesn't involve risks to the government micromanaging the economy. if you say okay which is going to have a flat tariff of 10% or 20% or 30% whatever it takes to get to a zero trade deficit that doesn't introduce a lot of corruption or a lot of dangers bad policymaking because it's a very simple policy. it's just determined by an arithmetical formula and there's no opportunity for anybody to play games. one of the good things about it if you have a flat tariff, is if you had a 30% tariff on imported goods that's not enough to relocate the production of t-shirts that united states because cost is too great. it's great to relocate things like silicon wafer fabrication so would tend to relocate back to the u.s. high value capital-intensive skill intensive industries which is of course what we want to do. those are the industries that are high-quality -- high-quality into she wants to have and those are the industries that don't want to lose. i point that out just to point out that if you do get serious about protectionism, protectionism has a logic to it which if you understand what
the attack may impact american business, our economy and our nation's capitol and overall national security. steve moore from the "wall street journal" wonderful to have you in studio. the politics dealing with the aftermath of a terrorist attack? how does it improve the tone of partisanship in washington. >> anytime you have a national attack like this people pull together. i was thinking of the two major issues in washington. lori: immigration and gun control. >> those are two we've been hang link over months and months if not years. that is interesting i think it could have negative impact on both issues. lori: how so. , if it turns out it is saudis or foreigners, it will, it will, play into this kind of nativist, keep the foreigners out mentality. that is going to be a negative thing. in fact some of the senators and congressmen already said that maybe we should slow down on immigration reform. lori: wow! all the debate on immigration was held behind closed doors with the "gang of eight". that itself was critical because of the lack of transparency. >> interesting just today the "gang o
. maybe this shows it is very positive from the standpoint of the economy, if you use dynamic scoring. if you use statics deploring it is not and cannot so well. -- static scoring it is not going to come out so well. i have a question for the other witness. you said this in your statement tionhis is aasnab. the obvious question is whether or not there are sufficient jobs for average americans and illegal immigrants. the answer is no. >> as i indicated to us recently. latere have a participation rate we have a supply of low-skilled labor. it appears that what do is leapfrogging those individuals. we have millions upon millions of americans, not just black americans, but millions upon millions who do not have a job right now. i think it is a good idea to inform -- to reform immigration system but regard must be given to the fact that we have an over abundance of people not working today. we are at rates we have not sn in 80, 75 years. it is astonishing. if we have regularize asian of a greater pool of individuals who can compete on a one by one basis with americans here today those indi
they will have going forward on our economy. dagen: peter barnes has much more on this. peter: we looked at research reports on the impact of attacks of 9/11 back in 2001. the current economy has shown some softness recently in job creation and retail sales. any hits to consumer confidence may make things worse. two economists that i have talked to this morning do not think it will get too bad. the 9/11 attacks were targeted for the financial systems. consumer confidence rose sharply after the 9/11 attacks. experiencing the biggest monthly drop in a decade. the attacks caused more than 400 mass layoffs and displaced 130,000 workers. industrial production fell back then. the unemployment rate jumped more than a half a percentage point. we were already in a recession that september. we are not in a recession today. boston is not an economic center. >> maybe a day or two people will be hesitant about going out shopping. assuming nothing else happens, it should last much longer. peter: it could take a short-term hit because of boston. they are more worried about the impact on the economy and
manufacturing sector, creating new jobs and growing the economy for american families. energy is the foundation of our economy. we need to focus on the promise of prosperity. north american energy prosperity and the abundance that it offers to our country. america's greatness is tied to our freedom to produce and build things. republicans have a plan to grow our economy by making america a nation of builders once again. we want to streamline our government, cut red tape, and unleash the power of north american energy. with these things we can revitalize american manufacturing, and foster long-term economic growth and job creation for our citizens. lastly, we're determined to get to the truth regarding the terrorist attack on our nation's in benghazi, libya. in which three americans lost their lives. last year, i directed five committees to look at there is parts of this investigation. the next week, these committees will provide a comprehensive progress report on the investigation up to now. and this progress report will not represent the conclusion of their investigation, but it will be the be
're going to talk markets, the economy and much, much more. stay tuned for that and a lot more. >>> welcome back. now to the markets. it's going to be a big weekend ahead. joining us, lou brian. lou, place your betts. more likely up or down for the dow this week? well, you know what? i tend to look technically at the s&p instead of the dow. >> how about the s&p? it's a broader market index, even better. >> all right. i think that the interesting thing is that where the s&p held last week, this 1540 is a mark that held in march and early april and, again, last week, we went just a little below it. also in play around that level is the 50-day moving average which held the market a couple of times. if you're looking to get long on a tray, that's not a bed level because you kind of know where you're wrong when it goes underneath that. i think the interesting thing with the stock market is that it's really the only market right now that's playing along with the fed's qe brochure. don't fight the fed. buy on fed accommodation. the crude oil, the gold, copper, various commodities are lower since t

workers is significant in our stagnant economy. the unemployment rate for blacks without a high school diploma was 12 percent, today, it's more than doubled, to 24.6%. now, that clearly shows that we have an oversupply of low skilled labor relative to the -- that is for workers in all such classes, particularly black americans, because research shows that 40 percent of the 18-point percentage decline in the employment rates of black males is attributable to illegal immigration. that's hundreds of thousands of blacks without jobs. it translates to hundreds of thousands who can't pay taxes, who don't support their families on their own dime. the evidence also indicated that in addition to the pressing wage -- sorry, employment levels, illegal immigration drove down wage levels, by the federal reserve bank of atlanta, for example, showed that illegal immigration, and the spike in illegal immigration, was attributable to the nearly $960 per year decrease in wage levels of documented georgians. and the leisure and hospitality industries, it was $1520. for doctors and lawyers, $960 may not b
: seasonally strong time of year for home sales. overall, the u.s. economy is running below its historical trend. this is a study done by the index. my next guest says the economy sluggish growth may be the most ideal condition for investors. joining us is now jack. welcome to you. >> thank you, lori. lori: you see this as a prime opportunity. some new investment dollars could go into the stock market. >> yes, potentially. fair value in the market is probably about 1520. we are slightly ahead of that. we have a lot of favorable factors. one, keep money. we have stocks that look cheap. if we can get confidence, you know, of investors, but also builds confidence picking up, i think you could see treasurers and armature treasurers start to exploit that difference. as long as the fed keeps the backdrop in place, then the market can go higher. we do not want to fall into a double dip type of scenario. on the other hand, we do not want anything too strong to suggest that perhaps the fed will take its foot off the accelerator. lori: if you have new money to invest, what type of stocks would you p
teach japan economy at georgetown. you're making the summit interesting again. the interesting problems that you face, and i d not envy you, is you said the fits call consolidation, the consumption tax will go up next year and the following year, and you're certainly aware that will take a big hit on consumption on income that will have a negative impact on the economy, and i'm wondering how you're balancing these two different issues of fiscal consolidation and demand. [speaking japanese] >> translator: i think you have hit on the most important point, because whenever we may try to increase the taxes, it does not necessarily result in increasing the tax revenue. we have known the actual examples which have happened in the past in many nrsakg ne >> you can watch the rest of this online as we take you live now to the heritage foundation in washington, d.c. for remarks by senator mike lee of utah. he'll be talking about the conservative movement and the future of the republican party. >> in his most recent book, "we still hold these truths: rediscovering our principles, reclaiming our fu
, but until the economy improves they're the not going to get out of the way and i think because of that, this market will go up and more talk about that this week. >> we're only what, a couple-- we were down on the week about a couple hundred points, that's not a major selloff by any means. larry, thanks indeed. you're saying the market is trying to go up, we shall see. we have a news background, not yet occurred, at ten o'clock, half hour from now we're going to get the existing home sales, a very big pointing that is supposedly improving housing market. you'll get the numbers as we them, too. i want to warn you, coming up on friday, the latest gdp numbers, they're going to be inflated and show a rate of growth maybe 3%, very strong. but, there's a new calculation involved. so watch out there. the dow is now open for business. we're up 5 in the very early going, yeah, the up trend in place, first thing this monday morning. and why are we going to show you the price of a foreign corporation? why are we doing that? i'll tell you because the japanese stocks are going straight up as the ye
will not be at jac jacn hole sim this year. my next guest said that we're seeing a slowdown in the economy after a stock first quarter, joining us, wells fargo chief economist, john sylvia, you see a slowdown here? >> there is a slowdown that is what bothered market, stock market a little bit, we a single family housing stocks, retail sales disappointing. building into the commodity market, chinese economic growth is disappointing. people at the inning of year think this economy will take off, and earnings will be strong, then as year goes down they tamper down those expectations. >> you know there is one stock that stands a metaphor, caterpillar, we see them with disappointining results off 42 their earnings, because they are off in the mining sector, but they tell us about good news, just the op ship of what said in -- opposite of what you said in china in their outlook. >> caterpillar is a true global business, they have a lot of infrastructure, a lot of mining and lot of development in many of the asian economies, looking at u.s. companies as traditional as manage mcdonald's and coca-ca ha
? >> my instinct tells me that the answer is no, that in economic terms i think the market, the economy at large will move beyond this relatively quickly. but at the same time, there may be some lingering impact in terms of investor sentiment. the sell-off clearly that occurred on friday and then again on monday, in my opinion, was a reassessment of the pace of global growth. important to point out that most of the weakness yesterday was already in the market before the bombings took place. but clearly, there is an impact on investor sentiment, a reminder that it's a dangerous world. and so you may see a little bit less of a risk appetite going forward. in economic terms, i think we'll move beyond it fairly quickly. >> yeah. john, i guess you would ask, at this point, you wouldn't think that consumers would change behavior based on this. it could potentially aveng -- i don't know, whatever group you want to talk about, jonathan, restaurants or any type of tourists activities. nothing to expect at this point, do you think? >> if you said to me are consumers going to be spending time watc
: thank you for coming on. dagen: government funding is a nonstarter, not a kick starter for the economy. that will not get in the way of the white house trying to spend more money speak that is true, dagen. people in a sense almost do not real. government spending went to this huge peak after tarp. over 25% of our economy. it has now fallen as a share of gdp. we are down close to 22% of gdp. it is still too big. government is actually falling as a share of gdp. first-quarter, the quarter that we just finished will get data for that in about a week. we are expecting about 3% growth. that is pretty good news from the economic front. dagen: is that already factored into this stock market? >> well, at least in the short term i think you are right. i believe the stock market itself is undervalued considerably. in other words, if you go back to early 2009, it is really the rise in profits that has driven this market. if we get any extension, what the investment community called multiples, the stock market could go even higher. the dow is worth it fair value 18,500. we have these pullbacks eve

but if we meet in the middle we can do a lot of good for americans and for our economy. we are feeling very good about this, things are moving in a very good way and the supported -- the president supported our proposal it is in the right place to be because even if people don't agree with every single part i don't want to give you the impression he is begrudging but he is enthusiastic. and we are playing it just right moving forward by giving us the space to come up with the agreement and we thank him for doing that and he will continue to do that to get a bill done. >> we briefed the president on a number of details and a proposal that gang of 8 is coming up with that we will be bringing forward to the united states senate as short of a time as this evening. but the process we went through having been in the senate to have this process before was very supportive. the president realizes everybody didn't want -- get what they wanted completely but it is a product of compromise we appreciate his support and we believe that is important as we move forward with the process. that this is the be

. that will be the biggest day for me because they're the big indicators of how the global economy is doing overall. speaking of the global economy, caterpillar if this was clearly a disappointment and the guidance was disappointment and they telegraphed it a little and the stock's been up and the dow this morning and the two things here, number one, he's coming on and talking about stability and that's the key word on our air on cnbc and a lot of people have noted the drop in mining. mining was down 25%. sales in the mining division, second most important was down 25%. i think a lot of people have got that already set up. remember, this is heavily shorted stock and it was $100 two months ago and it's $80 today and a lot of people anticipated what's going on. let me mention apple very quickly. the hope here is for a special dividend, increase the dividend to over a 3% yield and start with the big buyback. that's the big hope there. nobody's expecting them to blow the cover off of any of these numbers and all of them have been coming down. >> guys, back to you. >> watching microsoft continue to gain now up 4.
